Stage: Production and Test
MERS is a statistical test generation tool written in C for generating a corpus of logic test patterns aimed at maximizing the effectiveness of side-channel analysis for a given sample of potential Trojans in a target gate-level netlist. For each Trojan in the sampled population of potential Trojans for a given design, MERS generates test patterns to maximize switching activity of the Trojan while minimizing switching activity in the surrounding circuit. The resulting test patterns can be used in tandem with side-channel analysis to identify potential Trojans in a design.
